Pride Auto Care— Spring and Summer Car Care Tips
Engine and Cooling System
Oil Change & Rotate the Tires
Four other “Go – Do’s” for your car
- The battery, belts, hoses and air filters are other “must check” items. Any good shop can check these for just about nothing. These should be examined using a professional eye with professional equipment.
- Belts and hoses (rubber compounds) wear out over time. Don’t want a “side-of-the-road” break down on nasty hot day do we?
- Replace dirty engine air and cabin air filters…let’s you and your car breathe and function better.
- Make sure the battery is holding a good charge and the charging system is working up to speed.

- bottled water,
- non-perishable snacks,
- needed medication,
- washer fluid,
- extra clothes,
- light to medium jacket(s),
- spare tire changing gear (Fix-a-flat but use it only in a pinch—that stuff is not good for wheels or techs to work with!), etc.
